Puma Fusion Nitro Spectra Review

Pros:
Traction bites hard
With the right size, the fit is great
Cons:
Materials stretch too much
Support and stability could be better

Performance of the Puma Fusion Nitro Spectra:

The traction on the Puma Fusion Nitro may be the best aspect of the shoe. Reviewers agree that the traction grips clean courts very nicely. Puma uses a full-length Nitro cushion, but they did cage it. It feels plush underfoot and the shoe offers a good amount of court feel. Reviewers also agree that if you can get the right size for you, the shoe fits well. The materials on the Fusion Nitro are thin, and one reviewer mentioned that they stretch too much when playing. In terms of support, the shoe has all of the needed support features. However, the implementation could've been better. Overall, the Puma Fusion Nitro is a decent shoe in the price range, but it doesn't live up to the previous model, the Clyde All-Pros.

The Puma Fusion Nitro is a responsive feeling shoe that provides solid traction. There is a nice amount of court feel. However, the caging of the midsole cushion takes away from the impact protection.

The Puma Fusion Nitro is a letdown compared to the Clyde All-Pros. The traction and cushion are great, but they don't work well with the rest of the shoe.

Just as I expected in my initial impressions, the traction sticks well to clean courts. On dustier courts, the traction did not perform as well as I was hoping.

The traction used on this shoe bites both hardwood and blacktop really well.

There is full-length Nitro foam that is caged, so the compression is very subdued. However, there is a good amount of court feel.

Puma uses a nice knit material to make the upper of the shoe. The materials do feel thin, but the shoe still feels comfortable. It conforms nicely to your foot.

The materials are awful. The upper stretches too much when there is pressure applied, especially with movements like stopping or changing directions.

I felt a lack of arch support with this shoe. The lateral containment had no issues, but the lateral stability could be better.

The shoe has the most typical support features but is missing an outrigger. Because of this, the rest of the shoe doesn't play well together.

As long as you get the right size, the fit will work for you. I wouldn't recommend these if you don't have a perfect size.

If you don't like a snug fit, you should probably go up half a size.
